that things stay the same and that she wants to bring up her children at downton. and matthew is not quite decided upon that. what about us? what about our children? you know i would do anything for this family. anything except help us. bonneville: will edith ever find proper love and happiness? i do hope to be seeing a bit more of you. bonneville: what will happen to mr. bates? anna: one day, something will occur to us and we'll follow it up, and the case against you will crumble. do you never doubt? no. bonneville: and sybil and branson, of course. they come back--an interesting sort of territory to play, because branson having been the chauffeur downstairs is now married to the daughter, so that creates a whole social unease and how you cope with that. branson: no, i don't agree, and i don't care who knows it! is there any way to shut him up? bonneville: i suppose an overarching theme is the family trying to find its feet again after the upsets of the war. so, there's still plenty to play for. ha ha! on pbs its a stunning new season starting with the impossible to resist downton abbey.

. and this is a difference from a kind of, you know, downton abbey set up. and this speaks to the economic drivers of the phenomenon. these are really hard working people. and one of the interesting things when you look at the data about hours worked is for the first time people have counted this kind of thing, you have less leisure at the very top than the middle. so these are people who are really hard working, tend to at least think of themselves as self-made, and i'm going to use that as a rather generous and roomny concept. so you could have an affluent dad like bill gates does, like mitt romney does, but still think of yourself as self-made because you didn't inherit the business that made you a multimillionaire from your dad. and that's particularly important playing into how they think of themselves in the world. it's important right now for these guys to be really numerate. one of the things i found really interesting and quite sort of international is this is really the age of mastery of numbers. and my favorite example of this, you know, we're kind of -- that seems to make sense when yo
